Synopsis

Less than 0.001% of all kids that start playing hockey will play a single game in the NHL. Those lucky enough to come close will experience a world filled with incredible highs and perilous lows. "So You Want Your Kid to Play Pro Hockey" takes the reader on a journey through the various levels of hockey to learn about politics, misconceptions, predators and hazing, drug addiction and alcohol abuse, and several other cultural intricacies.
Learn about the differences between the NCAA and Major Junior, what hockey is like in the Southern U.S. and Eastern Europe, and why the process is more important than the end result. Experience the game of hockey from a new perspective. Strap on the gear, get beneath the helmet and take an uncensored peek at hockey’s truly unique culture.
